Cheryl Cecchetto and Chef Wolfgang Puck to Return to Create the Academy's 2014 Governors Ball, 3/2

Academy governor Jeffrey Kurland, event producer Cheryl Cecchetto and master chef Wolfgang Puck will return to create this year's Governors Ball, the Academy's official post-Oscar celebration, which will immediately follow the 86th Oscars ceremony on Sunday, March 2. The Ball's 1,500 invited guests include Oscar winners and nominees, show presenters and other telecast participants.

As the chair of the Governors Ball, Kurland will oversee the décor, menu and entertainment planning, as well as design the attire to be worn by the evening's staff. Kurland is an acclaimed costume designer whose feature credits include "Hannah and Her Sisters," "Radio Days," "Crimes and Misdemeanors," "Erin Brockovich," "Ocean's Eleven," "Collateral," "Inception," "The Dictator," "Beautiful Creatures" and the upcoming film "Tomorrowland," starring George Clooney. He received an Oscar nomination for Costume Design for "Bullets over Broadway." This will be Kurland's fifth year serving as the chair of the Governors Ball.

Cecchetto, along with her Sequoia Productions team, will work with Kurland to manage every detail pertaining to the event, including décor, entertainment, food and personnel. With the transcendent wonder of nature as a theme, this year's Ball will feature lush vertical gardens designed with classic, elegant lines, inviting guests to meet, mingle and celebrate under the stars. Sequoia Productions' clients include The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, G'Day USA, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Westfield, and the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay. This will be Cecchetto's 25th consecutive year producing the Governors Ball.
